The monthly handicap event set for end of March at Stromlo Forest Park now clashes with a cycling and family day event to be held by the Hartley organisation. This meant we need to make a decision now on where we want out long and short course running events to go. Our main problem is access to the grass cross country course over the cycling track without any one getting bowled over.
A couple of us from the monthly handicap sub committee surveyed and came up with a plan that we will take to a meeting on Thursday morning with the venue managers and the Harley people. Hopefully we can co exist on the day. Cyclists and runners do not mix well especially in a confined area such as on front of the main building at SFP. If not successful, we do have a Plan B, but we believe we have a good case for what we want.
Very warm this morning, I really am putting it down as a rest day, but 5 km was exercise in any case. Look out nanna, better move as I plan to have an afternoon siesta, too hot now to do do anything else, tennis is too boring to watch on TV.
